Cowley was responsible for both of GW's game-winners this week as the Colonials improved to 5-0 on the year with home victories over UMBC and No. 17 Arkansas.

On Thursday, the senior received a pass from rookie Olivia Di Cristofaro in the 30th minute then found the back of the net from 12 yards out to give the Buff and Blue a 1-0 triumph over the Retrievers.

On Sunday, Cowley headed a cross from classmate Kate Elson behind Arkansas' keeper to lift the Colonials over No. 17 Arkansas, 1-0. The win marked GW's first victory over a ranked team since 1996.

The forward took a total of six shots on goal during the week while logging 151 minutes in two starts.

The Colonials have now matched their best season start with five consecutive wins.
